Bruce travelled to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland with Stephen Colbert and the team from The Late Show to film an installment of The Hungry for Power Games. Hilarity ensued. 🙂
While in Cleveland Bruce filmed the game taking America by storm: Trump or False!
We spent the day at Mama J’s in Richmond, VA for this shoot with ESPN’s Dianna Russini, and the Washington Redskins’ DeAngelo Hall and Josh Norman. Shot with two Sony PMW-F5s, one mounted on our Dana Dolly, and a PXW-FS7 the piece ended up having a breaking news item in it. As such, at the end of the shoot we had to cut selects from the footage, transcode it, and then upload it to ESPN in Bristol, CT to air on that night’s SportsCenter less than an hour after we wrapped.
Stephen Colbert + Waffle House = comedy gold. You can read more about the shoot and see some behind the scenes photos here.
The Daily Show visited the Federal Election Commission in DC, and we were very happy to be a part of what turned out to be a hilarious shoot. You can get more information here.
We were delighted to continue our decade long relationship with Stephen Colbert when he took over The Late Show from David Letterman. The above piece was just one of many shot in one VERY long day in New Orleans in August 2015 prior to the new show’s debut.
We shot this piece for The Daily Show during the weekend of the recent Million Man March in DC.
Bruce shot this piece for The Today Show is October 2105 as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It was shot with the Sony PMW-F5, PMW-F3, and the Canon 5DMk3.
The above piece ran on Football Night In America on November 2, 2014. Bruce shot this in Pittsburgh, PA for NBC using the Sony F5 and Sony F55 cameras. He drove to Pittsburgh for a 1:30pm call time on November 1, and the spot aired at 8pm on November 2.
Shot for NBC’s Meet The Press by Bruce using the Canon C300, the above piece was filmed in one day in Killeen, TX. Bruce landed at 4am, call time was 7am, and he was on a plane home at 7pm. The piece then aired 36 hours later. Lunatic schedule, but the piece turned out nicely.
Recently shot for MLB Network, this feature on Billy Hamilton of the Cincinati Reds was shot by a team of three DPs, with Bruce on the Sony PMW-F3 using both the Sony prime lenses and the HDx35 adapter with the Fujinon 16×6.3.
Bruce spent a fun, and early, morning with Cal Ripken at his baseball camp in Aberdeen, MD as he ran the kids through some drills. Shot on the Canon C300 and 5DMkII for TBS.
This is a piece shot for ESPN with the Panasonic Varicam, Sony F3 and the Canon 5DMkII — Bruce is incredibly proud of how it turned out. You can learn more about the shoot here.
Bruce shot with the Sony FS700 to create the look that the client wanted in this :30 spot for Sentara Healthcare.
This was a four camera shoot for The Today Show and Rock Center with Brian Williams. More information about the shoot can be found here.
This was shot for ESPN at the Baltimore Ravens training facility — we were, ironically, on their indoor basketball court for the shoot. We use two Panasonic Varicams for the shoot, one of which had the Letus Ultimate and B4 Relay Lens installed. The windows were painstakingly cut out by Bruce and then we filled the court with fog using a haze-maker and created the strobe with a flicker generator.
Bruce was inspired to create something for Community Education Group after meeting the director, Toni Young, while on another shoot. Gonzo quickly came on board and the two collaborated to capture the interviews and footage seen in the film above.
The entire film was shot using the Canon 5DMkII and audio was recorded separately to WAV files.
This was shot for the Department of Justice using the Panasonic HPX2000 and the Letus DoF system.
This is an example of Bruce Liffiton’s work with one of our corporate clients. Various cameras were used: the RED One, Panasonic Varicam, Sony CineAlta and Panasonic HPX2000. The Letus DoF system was also used to create a shallow depth of field in some shots.
